Blue light special! This teal entryway light is a funky take on the ordinary. Even if you don't want to commit to a blue glow, swapping out your clear bulbs with colored ones is a fun idea for your next party

Design Field Trip: La Brea Avenue, Los Angeles

May 18, 2013

If you're ever in Los Angeles, make it a point to visit La Brea Avenue's design district. This small, walkable stretch of inspiration (located between Melrose Avenue and Wilshire Boulevard) is densely packed with everything from quirky antiques to urban fashion. Start the day at Nick Metropolis, a warehouse filled with old movie props (and therefore the best photo props) we have ever seen. From there, we strolled and browsed everything from custom furniture to foreign finds. Between the fashion, food, and interiors, we left with loads of inspiration and new LA favorites.
